    I think it's a safe bet it's dragon related, I doubt Drek'thar is representing anything other than a portion of the name, or a way to get to the portion of a name through some other hint related to him.

    I agree with you... but I'm not finding any new ideas

    Honestly just watch it be Drek’thar sounds like Drak’something and that’s the only reason he’s on it.

    We already got Drak but we’re missing letters or the spelling of the second half.

    Or similar to the name change to Kul Tiras to make it sound more Vrykul, it could be Drak Something.

    Please don't be boring. You are better than this.

    Since I am way too lazy to read all of the last 50 or so pages I skipped, where does this code come from exactly?

    Not a good puzzle solver though

    What are the possible combinatorics of "Drek'thar" ?
    Drakethar?

    The same person in this thread who has been posting cryptic leaks like the neutral race and evoker class.

    So there's a distinct possibility it's pure bullshit?

    As someone mentioned - how will you know that you guessed. I think that when one person will solve it, I will write back after some time (certainly before 19)

    By the way, I thought that this picture would be a trivia .. On the other hand, looking deeper .. It can get more interesting.

    I wrote back to one person why in this way - a guessing game - and not just pass it on .. Why?
    I think the idea worked out great and some "responsible" could take it a bit, for example. Maybe there is a bit of sentiment here, until Blizzard was much more open - and openness and conversation once had a great impact on the game and the changes associated with it. I think we all miss it a bit.

    Nevertheless - the guessing game is not a joke and its result is true

    Definitely a possibility, though I don't see anything else better to speculate about right now.

    It has something to do with alterac valley or alterac mountains.

    Would be funny if their name is Drak’tharon for whatever reason despite that being a Drakkari thing.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Though I will give it to them. If they reveal that the Drakkari trolls are named after Dragons after all (with Northrend being close to Dragon Isles) that would be interesting.

    Either way, I believe Dragon Isles will have a very big Vrykul presence and focus. Definitely a dungeon or two, possibly even a raid.

    Ouuu I like this. Maybe we’ll finally realize how much of a d**khead odyn is and kill him off in a raid instead of doing his bidding. Also makes me remember how odyn was the only titan keeper to refuse to empower the original aspects back in the day.

    This made people think that Drust has been cut from the expansion... but what if the real reason for no Vrykul was because 10.0 is going to have a shitload of Vrykul and they didn’t want to spam them back to back?

    It also means the Drust could be used and finished up in 10.0.
    I agree with you.

    Ever since Dragonflight was leaked I've been pretty much certain that Vrykul will have a big presence on the Dragon Isles.

    There is so much going in their favour in terms of having a large presence.

    Our very first exposure to them, they were linked to dragons, whether it be hunting them, taming them or subjecting them. It was a reoccurring point in Wrath. This continued in Legion where we see them with the Drekijar.

    Also there's Odyn and his Valarjar army who has made it very clear that he is very much not a fan of the Aspects and the Dragonflights, and very much opposes them.

    With Blizzard wanting to claim a bit of goodwill as well as a return to a more classic version of WoW; then Vrykul are absolutely a safe bet to include on said goodwill expansion. They're an iconic race from the WoW era of Warcraft, and they can be presented as a big enough threat that doesn't steep into ridiculous cosmic levels - they're very grounded.

    Plus, it helps that both the Norse theme and aesthetic that inspires the Vrykul aesthetic has always been very popular in fantasy and fiction, even moreso in recent years. But also, Vrykul played a substantial role in both of WoW's (arguable) two most popular expansions.

    They're a surefire safe bet to include in this expansion all things considered as well as one of the better times to include a variation of them as a player race.

    Give me a dungeon and a raid with a heavy norse, draconic and vrykul theme and aesthetic please. I'm sure the vast majority of WoW players would be happy with that.

    This would be bomb, vrykul and dragons together? yassssss

    A Vrykul aesthetic expansion also lines up with the new polar bear. I was thinking that they may go for a Japanese aesthetic for the expansion (see: old Nelf stuff) but Vrykul would make a lot of sense.

    However I think it’s too specific to be the whole expansion. Maybe multiple zones though.

    Also the race being traitor Vrykul who side with the dragons would be pretty cool and give them a good link to the main theme.

    Also worth noting that Vrykul have appeared in Legion, BFA and SL despite never being the main theme or very connected to it. This could have all been buildup. Exiles Reach is also notably Stormheim.
